December KGS+ Blitz Tournament, Asian/European daytime 3k and weaker division (Winner: andrew86)

Welcome to the December KGS Plus tournament!

19x19, Blitz, Single Elimination! The time settings are very short: 6 minutes Main time plus Canadian 3 minutes 20sec per 25 moves (6m + 3min 20sec / 25moves). the rounds are spaced 30 min apart, all rounds in the same day. Make sure your connection is stable and to use our anti-slip system. For your move to be accepted you must hover for ¼ second before making your move. You only have 8 seconds per move on average, so knowing exactly when to click is very important!

People who do not fullfill those conditions but register anyway may be disqualified anytime (before the tournament starts, during a game, during a round, or even once all the rounds are over). A disqualified player will have no prize and won't be allowed to enter upcoming tournaments.
